I had few classes with the amazing yoga teacher Krishna during my stay in Arambol beach in Goa. These few classes were unforgettable and Krishnas presence and teachings skills are the best. Krishna is very precise and he is not farad to tell you when you are doing something wrong, and thereafter help you to do it right. He is a pusher and will push you to do more that you believed you can which was an amazing feeling. I was so happy with Krishnas classes and I would recommend everyone to do yoga with him. He really is the best teacher I have had and I feel blessed having had the chance to learn from him.

The atmosphere is one to fall in love with. Both students and teachers are there with a smile and kind words. As a student I feel cared for and seen, and the teachers are both professional and down to earth. A perfect place for real yoga.

I decided to join the one month yoga teacher training course not only for the certificate, but more importantly I wanted to find out my real feelings about yoga. The whole month, we did a lot of practice everyday. It was tough and sometimes I was really exhausted but I was very happy. I have to say it can not be a more right decision to go there. I have made new friends and learned a lot, not only yoga asanas but also new attitudes towards life. It seems that yoga opens a new window in front of me. I love yoga and I would like to share it with everyone.

This ttc gave me a good basic to start my work as a yogateacher. It showed the many different sides of yoga. The diversity of yogateachers was good, and there was a lot of knowledge to absorb. The body felt great after doing so much yoga in one month. It is nice that this ttc is for everybody, and everybody will get benefits of it, no matter if you are a starter or advanced. It was good to have this ttc as a basic, and be able to build further from her.

I recommend everyone to try yoga with Krishna! Excellent and varied trainings 🙂
Marte Taylor, Norway
It did not matter that I was in bad shape and had some pain when I started. Krishna is good to incorporate and adapt so that it is possible to take it at your own pace. He put much emphasis on preventing injury and overloading, especially in the beginning, and now the body is virtually painless! . There was great energy in the studio and in class, and I felt welcome right away. We learn a lot while we’re at it, and there are still lots of laughter and good mood, while we push ourselves as far as we are getting into. Every time I stuff something new and get some more, and it is inspiring to see that the other master more and more. Soon I stand on your head … 

Thank you for challenging, great hours and good teaching, Krishna!

Very good yoga classes! 
Absolutely incredible that we have been lucky enough to get a professional Indian yoga teacher to Steinkjer.
Merete Mork , Norway
I’ve just completed my 200hr yoga teacher training with Upaya Yoga & I am deeply humbled & grateful for the experience & teachings. This experience has changed my whole view of teacher training & what it means. I thank Krishna Sharma & the other teachers for sharing their gifts. My journey into yoga is only now beginning. Teaching will simply be the by-product. Thank you
Dina Aherne, England
I felt welcome at Upaya Yoga. I can really say that my colleagues and my instructors were, for a month, my family away from home. I felt taken care of, and the knowledge I gained during the course was varied and enriching. When I compared the things I had learned at Upaya Yoga with the things other people learned in other yoga teacher trainings, I realized that I had made a good choice when I picked Upaya Yoga. All the instructors did their best sharing their knowledge with us, and their teachings were both informative and inspiring.
